01/01/06 NEWS - We had a really great trip to the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan (MOMA) yesterday morning. We saw some very famous pieces like Van Gogh's "Starry Night" and several Picassos and many other modern influences. I would like to post pictures or maybe a link to the the interesting 5 part "metamorphosis" of an abstract series by Picasso that was in the Museum. There was one series done of a nude and one series of a bull. It is a great way to teach how subjects represented are abstracted in a five part series each getting progressively more abstract.

7/3/05 - NEWS - Tracy is embarking on a 2005 summer time painting binge. The goal is to get a jumpstart on Volume 2 of the Strange Skeletons color works. Color paintings are much more labor intensive. She is able to crank out several detailed sketches a week but usually only one painting a month. She is planning to do 10 this summer alone. That is an ambitious goal given her other commitments. The Volume 1 material is fairly locked up and the only delays have been with the graphic arts department and software glitches. Stay Tuned. 

 

6/24/05 NEWS - An unexpected change in the software used to publish the book, but shouldn't slow down the expected release date for fall 2005.

 

6/5/05 NEWS - Sorry if we have not received or responded to your emails. We have been experiencing email technical difficulties for the last three weeks. We have added a direct link to our email on the contact us page. Thanks to everyone who personally told me they had problems or I would have just thought it was a slow month for emails. 

 

5/15/05 NEWS - Finally we are able to be found by the most popular search engine- GOOGLE. It took over three months. Did you know you have to send your URL to each search engine for application? In other words the search engines don't just find your website unless you tell them you are there. Incidentally that tripled the hits to the website.

 

5/8/05 NEWS - Mock-ups for the cover of the first book Volume 1 are being worked on. There has been several amendments to the original layout but it is improving with each polish. A sneak peak will be available by mid June here on the News page.  Stay Tuned!

 

4/28/05 NEWS- Admittedly we have been holding back some of the newly finished works in progress for when the website goes fully active in September 05. We are also waiting to sell original works because we may still need to re-photograph them before publishing. Here is a small sample.         

 

4/15/05 COMMENT- I am looking forward to seeing the finished works in progress. I have an original hanging in my office and so many people comment on how they like it.

4/05/05 NEWS- The rough draft of the book Strange Skeletons Volume 1 is on the chopping block. We have selected most of the art that will go to publication. We have also created a nice model book  from cut and pasted images we plan to use. There will be some delays getting the works re-photographed and properly formatted.

 

3/26/05 COMMENT- WOW! Your work is amazing! It's really beautiful, and reminds me of stained glass on paper! I am so proud of you, and you are such an inspiration--thanks! love ya li li la la
